i have a irregular cycle about 1 period every year so its hard for me to know when i ovulate , i figured if i get on the pill then it will help me be able to calculate my "period" and if i miss them every other day and have unprotected sex then i will be able to ovulate , this was my husbands idea i just want to conceive as soon as i ovulate .

Hello Anonymous,

I am sure your husband has good intentions, but this will not work.

Your gynecologist prescribed the birth control pills to help regulate your menstrual cycle. Take them as directed, that is one pill at the same time each day.

Did your doctor tell you why you only have a period once a year? Have you discussed wanting to conceive and if that is possible?

Depending on the cause of your irregular menstrual cycle, you may need to be on the pills for a while before conceiving is possible

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to us.

Are you trying to become pregnant? If so, why not stop taking your birth control pills completely?

If you want to become pregnant, stop taking the pills. Your own hormone levels will adjust. You will ovulate.
